Yep I know – another “pod mod” – this is the Hotcig Sniper Kit.

Hotcig Sniper KitWhat has caught my eye is the design of this device and how it resembles some single battery mods. I will tell you more below!sniper purple

What To Expect From The Hotcig Sniper Kit?

The most striking design feature for me is the battery cap. This reminds me of devices such as the Vaporesso Swag 2 and the Eleaf Pico X. Like both of these mods the battery compartment is a top access jobby with a screw on cap.Hotcig Sniper Kit components

Although this uses a single 18650 battery – it doesn’t have a standard 510 connector (which seems such a shame – are you listening Hotcig?).Hotcig Sniper Kit battery

Instead this uses a removable and refillable pod system.sniper pod removal

The pod will hold up to 3.2ml of e-liquid and is refillable via a side fill port on the pod.

The coils are replaceable thankfully and there are 2 coil options – both included in the kit:Hotcig Sniper Kit coil change

  • 0.17ohm mesh (50W recommended)
  • 0.4ohm mesh (26W recommended).

Moving on to the actual device, this has a HM-80W chip and will output up to 80W and has variable wattage control.Hotcig Sniper Kit chip

A 0.96in colour screen located on the side displays all your vaping data.sniper lava

There are 5 colours to choose from: Miami Blue, Danxia Red, Aurora Purple, Canola Yellow and Lava Orange.

Is the Hotcig Sniper Kit right on target? Or is it missing by a long shot? Let me know your thoughts in the comments below!

My name is Michelle - I am 46 and an engineer and Technical Author by trade. I started vaping many years ago in the days of Tornado tanks, Ego batteries and Variable Voltage. My journey in vaping began again a few years ago and have started to move up in the shiny shiny gadget department and love vaping! I have finally stopped smoking as of June 2019 and that is all thanks to vaping! 20mg Nicotine Salts are my hero! Oh and I am partial to a nice pod mod!
